happy holy week!
the boy and i are thrilled to be spending the week of easter in the holy land, where the saviour jesus christ lived, ministered, atoned, died and was resurrected two thousand years ago. while we are sure this experience walking where he walked will be deeply enriching and really wonderful (it certainly was for me during my time studying abroad in jerusalem nine years ago), we heartily believe that christ's love and power fill the whole earth, and we all can follow him and find new life through him no matter where we are geographically or in circumstance.
our love for jesus christ and our faith in his reality and divinity, power and mastery is so very deep. we are immensely grateful for the tremendous hope, healing and joy that knowing him brings into our lives.
hallelujah! he lives!
here's a post i wrote about why my heart so earnestly beats with hallelujah each easter (and throughout the year).

and here to watch voices from all over the world join with the mormon tabernacle choir to sing hallelujah!
